#3444 closed enhancement (duplicate)

Allow multiple blogs to share users, roles, and capabilities.

Description

We already have constants for unifying user and usermeta tables, but roles and capabilities are still maintained separately (even if the user/usermeta tables) are changed. Some people don't want the fine-grained control that per-blog roles/caps would offer, and just want simple global user/role/cap sharing.

Patch coming.

Patch for trunk

#1 @markjaquith

  • Owner changed from anonymous to markjaquith
  • Status changed from new to assigned
  • Version set to 2.1

Something like that.

Patch doesn't support global role definitions, but otherwise, should work. More of a proof of concept than anything else.

Feature request so bumping to 2.6 for feature freeze. Doesn't this bug sound mu related, or am I getting confused?

Closed #4846 ("Unified permissions" mode for multiple WP installs sharing users/usermeta) as duplicate of this

I would assume the patch is now stale however.
